    Toy Fair Predictions

    With Toy Fair coming up next week, I wonder if there will be any new classic stuff shown. I sure hope so. I definately want to see Ephant Mon. There is still hope though for some surprise stuff like R5-D4, Cloud Car, ROTJ Jabba, and Imperial Shuttle. If they announce any one of these I'll soil myself with happiness.

    I'm really hping to see some classic stuff too after being so disappointed with the AOTC offerings. I've just got big fears that they'll all have the same legs as the AOTC stuff or horrible head sculpts like the death star escape han. Ephant mon would be like a breath of fresh air right about now though. I'm also hoping that the rumour of a sandcrawler will be true although i very much doubt it somehow. But there is one in AOTC so.......

    They could show that guted out FX x-eing that showed up the other day. that'd be sweet to see clearer pics of it. Also some of these other classic things that have been rumoured like bespin batle damaged Luke, rebel officer, cantina alien 2-packs, han Solo.

    but as far as AOTC stuff goes I'm really hoping for a glimpse of the republic attack gunship and the senators. maybe Dexter jettster as long as he doesn't look like an iguana on amphetamines or something stupid like that. Should be some decent stuff among the dross though.

    I definitely be stoked to see R5D4, but I imagine that comes as no suprise to anybody who's caught my recent posts.

    A CLOUD CAR would be irritating to see because "It is useless to resist" I'd be a sucker for that one as I love two person vehicles. And I've already got the TIE BOMBER on my list.

    How nice of Hasbro to release such an unmade classic in conjunction with Episode II. My vehicle fix will be satisfied and I won't have to buy what I feel are the pretty uninspired designs of Episode II. (Truly a Lucasfilm problem -- can't blame Hasbro for any of those fiascos.)

    PS -- RUMOR OF A SANDCRAWLER? Jargo, must you toy with my mind so mercilessly? Beyond Cruel! It's Positively Wicked! That's it, I'm reporting you to Sir Steve. Vader has nothing on your as far as insidious mind games . . .

    He has a goiter.

    I would like to see Ephant Mon, Bespin Luke, Hoth Han, Chewie w/ blasted Threepio, and Kitik Keed'kak.

    I really hope those cantina packs are just a rumor. I'd love to get a new Dr Evizan, but Ponda Baba and Momaw Nadon are pretty damn good figures, even though they're pretty old. I think resculpting those two would be a real waste. Ditto for a resculpt Greedo. If they're not resculpts, however, I got two suggestions: the Tonnika sisters and Feltipern Trevagg with Nightlily. These would be supersweet! I won't get my hopes up though.

    I'd like to see figures that are consistent with the POTJ toys, but I'm afraid that that isn't going to happen.

    Man do you people not pay attention to the trailers? There isn't ONE Sandcralwer in Episode 2!...There's two. And they both are shown from the front in the trailer with their hatches open which makes it less than a background sandcrawler since that also puts it in a total of 3 films now.

    I dunno about a sandcrawler, I wouldn't be too pleased to get a sandcrawler that would just be taken from the vintage mold with a few tweaks to it and probably 1-2 pack-in figures and would be $100. (I do believe Hasbro added it all up what it would cost and reported that being the lowest possible price.)

    A Cloud car would be cool, but if they make it it better not be $30+ and should include 2 pilots rather than one or none.

    Doubtful on the R5-D4, R4-M7 replaced that. R5 might be released later. *shrugs* Only ones I can think of that would actually have a chance are Damaged Bespin Luke, Damaged Bespin Vader, Rebel Trooper V.2 (with a different head sculpt), Imp. Officer V.2, Ephant Mon, and a couple others I think, not sure.

    Going by the list that I saw online, there will be a few OT figures and E1 figures released this year. Not sure if all of them will be shown at toyfair or if some will be held off to pop up later on, since the toyfair will include mostly E2 items.

    The Phantom Menace:
    Queens Handmaiden
    Pod Racer (unknown)
    Nute Gunray (Holographic)
    Lott Dod (Neimoidian Senator)

    A New Hope:
    Rebel Officer (Probably Dodonna)
    Cantina Alien (unknown)
    Imperial Officer (Head Varient)
    Rebel Fleet Trooper (Head Variant)

    Empire Strikes Back:
    Han Solo (Probably Hoth)
    Chewbacca w/ C-3PO
    Luke Skywalker: Bespin (Battle Damaged)
    Darth Vader: Bespin

    Return of the Jedi:
    Ephant Mon

    Thats all of the figures that appeared on the list for this year that was posted at the German website that I pulled my list of E2 figures off of. I think they may be wrong about the Holo Nute Gunray and Lott Dodd figures again this year, though.
